From what’s in the bag, to the bag itself, and everything in between. Our mission is to create healthier lawns that are better for people, pets, and the planet.
Many of the synthetic chemicals that eliminate things like weeds and pests aren’t designed to be safe for humans or pets, either (picture the traditional “stay off the grass” yard sign). And, long term use of synthetic chemicals can result in shallow roots, little drought and traffic tolerance, and the need for frequent watering. Choosing to maintain your lawn without the use of synthetic chemicals and toxins not only means creating a safer yard, but a healthier lawn.
Although it may seem like your lawn is just a small plot of land, your choice to keep things like synthetic-chemical-based fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides off of that land can have a huge impact. With that choice, you are joining so many others in making yards, neighborhoods and waterways around the world safer places for humans and wildlife to live and play.
While phosphorus plays an important role in aiding plant development, it’s easy to accidentally over apply. Run off from excess phosphorus can wreak havoc on the environment and has been linked to algae blooms that deplete waterways of oxygen. With all of this in mind, we eliminated or decreased phosphorus in our formulas where possible and replaced it with humic acid, an organic substance that returns carbon to depleted soils and provides a boost to your lawn’s entire ecosystem.
We do our very best to pick sources that are sustainable, like our recyclable boxes and our bags made of 30% plant-based plastic derived from sugarcane. A renewable and sustainable crop, sugarcane absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The resulting plastic is BPA-free and 100% recyclable.
